Pregnancy update

ALMOST 36 WEEKS.. (tomorrow I will be)  Very excited to hit this milestone cause that means I can give birth at my hospital with my providers.  Which is def a relief of some stress.    Got everything, just may not be in the prettiest place or spot.. or Organize.. but I have time right... well... If this girl keeps doing what she is doing.. I might not have time. Jeeze oh peas... Unless she is gonna do most of the work now and then wait until the last min to pull the final lever for the true labor to start..  We only can just wait... and see..  This got to be like the worst part of pregnancy for me. (The waiting!!!) Thankfully this girl has really blessed me with a great... DID I SAY GREAT.. I MEAN AWESOME, SUPERB... I feel like any word I come up with under values how beautiful this experience has been and how comfortable I been through out the changes that has been occurring to my body.

My husband is so thankful for only a few hormonal meltdowns and def help me feel like I wasn't a psycho for thinking the way I am.

Ham and Pineapple Crockpot recipe.

Yesterday was my husband had our first new parenting class.. OH BOY RIGHT!!! You should have seen my husband's face as we were in class.. Poor guy but better he gets the shocker now than later right????

For dinner last night since class was at six, I did a short crock pot recipe.. of course I always forget to take pictures.. Man.. what got to happen for me to REMEMBER... anywho! It was a great recipe and I still want to share it. 

I wish I could say I made it up myself... but I can't :(

What You’ll Need:
  • Boneless Fully Cooked Ham {approx. 5 lbs.} ~ just  make sure it will fit in your crockpot! ;)
  • One 20 oz. Can of Crushed Pineapple or Pineapple Tidbits
  • 1.5 Cups Packed Brown Sugar
  • Crockpot
What You’ll Do:
  • Place ham in Crockpot.
  • Pour entire contents of pineapple can into crockpot, over ham.
  • Add brown sugar into crockpot {spread over ham}
  • Cook on high for 3 – 4 hours, or on low 7 – 8 hours {depending on size of ham} ~ don’t overcook!
  • Occasionally scoop up sauce mixture and pour over ham while cooking.
Since I was just feeding Spencer and I, I used a two pound ham rather than five. And cooked it on high for 2.5 hours and it was ready to go. AMAZING!!! And I love pineapple especially since it has been cooked in brown sugar... Yummy!!!!! 

Do you have any crockpot recipes that you love... 99.9% of my recipes always involve Chicken. I am trying to change things up a bit.

Happy Holidays From The Kecks!!!!


I hope your holidays went as well as ours did.  Even though we didn't go home; we certainly enjoyed each others company.  It was nice to have the holidays at our place. At times going home causes so much stress, we got to see this person and that person and oh don't forget your twice removed step cousin ( a bit of exaggeration but you get what I mean).  

This year I am making some resolutions. Are you?

1.  Is be the best momma I can be for my lil girl
2.  Take more pictures
3.  After giving birth to my lil girl, start working on getting myself in a place where I am comfortable with my body. I am not worried about numbers on a scale. But where I feel beautiful and happy with my body. That is most important to me.
4.  To find some me-time, I struggle finding it now. I am sure I will struggle some more once our lil miracle comes. 
5.  To relax and enjoy the ride of life. 
6.  Make a routine for myself in the mornings and evenings. 
7.  Do more activities out of the house with my family
8.  Make the blog more active place in my weekly schedule.

As you noticed these goals it is hard to be measured. But I just want a little improvement compared to 2013. If the improvement is there then I am happy. I am sure I forgot some resolutions.  But who says you need to have your resolutions written down or thought of on Dec 31 or Jan 1; NOT I!!!!  

Are you making any resolutions???
